The March 711 pictured above is the beginings of a prototype, that may or may not come to market.
At the moment it's a Scalextric body on my new chassis...looks like a real slot car.
If it comes to market it'll have a fully detailed engine, gearbox and the airbox-rear end treatment will be made scale...in fact the whole body will be recreated so that I don't infringe on hornby's copyright. I only produce originals.
However, the chassis is available now...and it'll fit many existing F-1 cars, its narrow enough to accomodate 60's Lotuses and BRM's, and low enough to fit a Matchbox Surtees or one of those 1970 Scalextric cars that got lost in the toy world when the slot car world crashed in the distant past.

It's interesting that March hedged their bet when they introduced the March 711. Ronnie Peterson's car had a Cosworth DFV engine (pictured in Dennis' post), whilst team mate Andrea de Adamich's car had an Alfa Romeo engine.
That Scalextric body looks like a 711 with a 721X rear-end. Here are some profile drawings of the 711 / 721:
A strange variant of the March 711 was the 1972 "Eifelland".
Gunther Henerici, a German businessman, wanted to go racing in the early 1970s and to that end he bought a March 721 and had aerodynamicist Lutz Colani play with the design. The result was the unusual looking Eifelland - named for Henerici's caravan company. Rolf Stommelen tried hard for the team and managed to finish in six out of eight attempts.
